PopFUZE #32

Rob Liefeld is a creator that I have a lot of respect for. He is bubbling with enthusiasm for comics/ pop culture, bursting with fun ideas and has had his heart set on Hollywood for almost 15 years. I know that he has a lot of movie projects in various stages of production and at one time was looking at working with Steven Speilberg and Tom Cruise on separate projects.

Well, now it looks like the Hollywood system has come through for my favourite creator!

Warner Bros. is trying to develop another potential comic franchise by acquiring the superhero project "Capeshooters," with Bryan Singer in negotiations to produce.

J.P. Lavin and Chad Damiani will write the screenplay, which follows two down-on-their-luck slackers who specialize in shooting videos of superheroes. They find themselves on the run when they uncover evidence that a legendary superhero actually is evil.

The story is based on an upcoming graphic novel by Rob Liefeld.

WOW this is such a great concept! I love the idea of two guys who do nothing but go around shooting video of superheroes in action. The twist is great ... plus we get to see a comic book too!

With Bryan Singer (X-Men, Superman Returns) and Liefeld on the same project, this movie has real credibility for fan boys. While I would rather see a movie based on his Youngblood property, it will still be a huge buzz to see 'Based on a graphic novel by Rob Liefeld' in the opening credits!
